My present focus on Instagram, and the theme of my future book, is helping women have relationships with their bodies that makes them confident and powerful.
So, I’ve delved into the political, historical, and societal forces that lead women to see our bodies as enemies… and this includes the force of the beauty industry.
As I’ve discussed toxic implications of beauty culture, I frequently receive this comment:
“Nobody is forcing beauty products and cosmetic procedures on women. Women are choosing this.”
Is that really true?
In this video, I discuss:
- The invisible abuse of the beauty industry
- The difference between coercion and free will choices
- How beauty can be a positive expression, if freely chosen
That idea that women are choosing our own oppression in the guise of beauty is due to to the catastrophic misunderstanding that force can only be done through physical means, rather than psychological means.
